AERO is still using the nest as home base and will continue to do so until he migrates in September.  His mother will leave first on her long flight south, while the father will remain behind to help Aero with meals. The father
will migrate about the same time as Aero, which will be a few weeks after the mother leaves.  All but the southernmost breeding populations in North America are migratory, vacating their breeding grounds in late summer for rain-forest rivers and fish-rich seacoasts and lakes of Central and South America.

AERO has officially fledged.  He/she was off the nest this morning. But for the next month will continue hanging around the nest area perfecting its fly ability and learning how to fish.

Nearing time for Aero to Fledge

Keep watching.  Aero is preparing his/her wings to gain strength to fly.  The young ospreys have traditionally fedged (first flight from nest) within the first week or two of August.
